This book is a much needed response to the current crisis in the field of literary studies. It first openly denounces the fundamental flaws of poststructuralist ""literary"" criticism, which has strayed from literature itself to become a self-serving professional enterprise to the expense of the field at large and of the students in particular It then proposes a new definition and a structural description of our object of study which resolves the mediatic inconsistencies of the literary canon by including non-traditional narrative and poetic manifestation, such as films, comic books and pop songs, hence laying the foundations for a renewed and improved as well as viable academic discipline that answers to the expectations of students and teachers alike in the 21st century: Imaginology.
